houses of the Zodiac.

Flawless gems are auspicious and flawed gems are a source of
misfortune. Richard Shaw Brown, Jr ( www.agt-gems.com )
writes that the Vedic texts which state that pure flawless
gems have auspicious powers ( Garuda Purana, Agni Purana)
are correct. " After 25 years of researching and
experimenting with gemstones, it is our carefully considered
opinion that the Vedic texts are correct. Flawed gems are
simply a source of misfortune, not to mention their being
ugly ! Think about it ! How many people are prepared to
tolerate defects in their clothing, or any other personal
items they possess?. Even a single scratch on a nice
automobile is an eyesore, so why do people tolerate flawed
gems? "

Howard Beckman ( www.p-g-a.org ) writes that different
Chakras absorb different cosmic colors and nourish
particular glands in the body.

Diseases can be cured by using appropriate gems.

Astrology, Holistic Medicine & Ayurveda Regulation of Food,
Sleep and Exercise

" Food is medicine; Medicine is food " said Hippocrates.
"Food is Brahman. Food was verily born before all creatures:
therefore it is called the medicine for all" declares the
Upanishads. By stating that food is the root cause of all
ills & illnesses Vedanta have formulated one of the
foundational principles of holistic health. At least half
the ailments of man can be traced directly or indirectly to
the problems of food. Regulation of food is not easy,
because it is an addiction like alcohol. Problems like
obesity, higher cholesterol level & irritable bowel syndrome
crop up if food is not controlled. By controlling food, the
whole body comes under control. "When taste is conquered
everything is conquered " averrs Vedanta. What really
matters is not how much we eat but how much of what we eat
is transformed into bioenergy & the building materials of
life.

Sir William Osler pointed out many years ago " Only a small
percentage of what we eat nourishes us; the balance goes to
waste and loss of energy". In holistic health, food should
be revered & a proper attitude towards food should be
developed. " Be thankful for all food, for food is Brahman "
said Vivekananda. Six hours have been prescribed for all
even though requirement of sleep varies from person to
person Research studies have indicated that even moderate
levels of exercise bolster the immune system. No amount of
sleep is sufficient for unwinding the mind for it is always
in a tense state under the stressful conditions of modern
life. Antidotes to stress include yogic techniques like
Meditation, prayer, cultivation of the Witness attitude &
practice of absolute self-surrender to the Divine, which
enable us to avoid a lot of unnecessary stress. Doing
nothing or simply lying down is not relaxation. The muscles
when stretched bring in relaxation as it frees them from the
tense condition. Some of the yogic Asanas are highly
effective because they can relax the muscles. There will be
focal point in the body which reflects the mental tension
which one finds oneself in. That focal point of mental
tension should be identified and you can choose that type of
yogic exercise which will relax the muscles & tendons of the
specific focal point of tension in you.

Regulation of Breath "Breathlessness is deathlessness "
averrs Yoga. Regulation of breath gives tremendous
relaxation.Pranayama, without the help of a bona fide
Master, can lead to serious complications. What is needed is
the practice of breathing deeply ( as deeply as possible )
through both the nostrils & then slowly breathing out (
without breath retention ). This kind of regulated deep
breathing can be done at any time, even in your office.
Psychosomatic pain can be alleviated by these simple yogic
techniques more effectively than allopathic pills or
tablets. Here we employ the internal pharmacy of Skill power
in lieu of the external pharmacy of Pill Power!

Vedic Holistic Medicine ( Ayurveda) gives priority to the
Whole and not to the parts, contrary to chemotherapy which
treats the parts only.

Astrology & Yoga

All knowledge is threefold (" Thraigunya Vishaya Veda "). In
Freudian Psycho-analysis we have three impulses, Id, Ego and
Supergo. The Vedantic Satwa, Rajas and Thamas correspond to
these impulses. The mind is always gripped by these three
impulses. Sometimes we are Rajasic ( worldly ) and go after
wealth. When intense anger and other negative emotions grip
us, we are Thamasic. When divine qualities like Love and
Peace influence us, we are Satwic ( divine ). The Ego with
its ten heads ( symbolised as the ten-headed Ravana ) is the
major block in attaining Self_Actualisation. The ten heads
of the Ego are Lust,Anger,Pride, Avarice, Sloth,
Covetousness, Attachment, Mind, Intellect, Conceit &
Egoistic Mentality. Only when the ten heads of the Ego are
removed can we hope to get Self-Realisation. ( Symbolically
only when the Ravana in us is destroyed ). When we do our
yoga, we will be assailed by three type of Ego. Rajasic (
wordly ), Thamasic ( bestial ) and Satwic ( noble ). In
order to overcome the three types of Ego, we are given
certain commandments.

" Ma the Sanghostha karmani " - (Let there be not in you any
attachment to inaction. ) This commandment is given so that
we can overcome the Thamasic ( bestial ) ego.

" Ma Karma Phala Heturbhoo " - ("Dont expect any reward")
This commandment is given to protect us from the Rajasic (
wordly ) ego, which always expects rewards for work done.

"Ubhe Sukruta Dushkrute " ( "Be beyond good and evil " )
This commandment is given to us to overcome the Satwic Ego,
for one should not hang on to Punya ( divine merit ).

In other words, during the process of Yoga, we will be
assailed by all sorts of negative thoughts. Our aim is to
identify with the Source of all thought, the Self. We will
find, as we progress on the path of yoga, that these
negative thoughts leave us slowly and steadily. Conquering
our negative aspect is not easy. The negative elements in
man are the true villains.

Alone, powerful & cruel are the dark and dreadful forces
that profit from the reign of Night and Ignorance and they
dont want any change in the body. We have to annihilate them
one by one.

In tragic life, God wot

No villains need be, passions spin the plot

We are betrayed by what is false within !

The entire Vedic wisdom is contained in one word " Transcend
". Transcend both pain & sorrow, transcend the triune
attributes of Nature. Transcend negativity !.

Astrology & Occult Vibratory Chemistry ( Tantra )

Tantra focusses on the Chit-Shakti, the Consciousness-Force
latent in the Universe. The entire Universe is the play and
display of this Cosmic Force and this Force is latent in
human beings as the Kundalini. She rises from the Root
Chakra to the Crown Chakra during Meditation. Tantra is a
similar discipline like Yoga and is very important from the
Divine perspective.

Books as the source of knowledge

Dante's Divina Commedia or Goethe's Faust were never the

can elevate man from the mundane to the sublime !
